Michael Kightly is the cover star in Saturday's MK Dons programme.
You will notice a one-off change to the design of Roots Review’s cover today which is all part of Retro Day.
The new look is based on the historic 1980/81 season when Southend United won their first major trophy, the Fourth Division championship.
Hatfuls of goals were scored, Derek Spence getting 21 of them along with the Player of the Year award, an amazing home record saw Blues win 19 and draw four, Mervyn Cawston went 985 minutes without conceding at one stage and were it to be three points for a win and not two, Dave Smith’s side would have ended up with 97 points.
It was a memorable season and the perfect one to reminisce with the change of style on Retro Day.
Included inside is a special one-off offer of £12 (including postage & packaging) for a poster of old Southend kits created by @truecolourskits, shown on a double-page spread.
Michael Kightly features as he talks about bouncing back from the defeat to Oxford, Community Day is celebrated with a look at SUCET’s involvement in many great projects and there’s a tribute to a former Leigh football man Henry Stennet.
We introduce next Season’s U9 Academy age group and there’s loads more besides, so make sure you don’t miss out.
They will be on sale from the Ticket Office before going on sale around the ground from our Roots Review branded trolleys.
